British government reject calls to prevent Trump from meeting the Queen

The British government on Tuesday rejected a petition which argued that receiving President Donald Trump as a guest would embarrass the Queen.

The British foreign office recommended that Trump “should be extended the full courtesy of a state visit’’, but lawmakers are to debate the petition on February 20.

The petitioners suggested that Trump should be allowed to enter Britain as the head of the US government, but should not be invited for a state visit, which would involve a reception by Queen Elizabeth II.

Those behind the petition were able to garner 1.8 million signatures.

“Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales,’’ the petition read.

The British parliament is planning to debate the petition alongside a counter-petition set up a few days later, which argued that Trump should indeed make a state visit to Britain.

British parliament says Trump is the leader of a free world and the UK is a country that supports free speech and does not believe people opposed to its point of view should be gagged.

The government is obliged to respond to any petition which is signed over 10,000 times.

Report say the date of Trump’s first visit to Britain as president has not yet been finalised.
